This is the first year I have taught Anthem, and I wanted to get some ideas for fun introductory or just general activities for the novel.

This is a novel in which the group is more important than the individual, so it seems like a natural fit to make teenagers (who pride themselves on their individualism yet often think and react as a group) see how it feels to have their own wishes or ideas subjugated to the group. Perhaps for one entire class period, no ideas are valid unless everyone agrees; or maybe everyone has to use the most basic school supplies (pencils without erasers and unlined paper) so no one will have something different or better than anyone else. Good luck!
